Tiffany Starkey

VFS_Logo_Girl_tiffanyTiffany has been dancing for as long as she can remember. "My mom put dance shoes on me as soon as I could walk!" she says. Growing up she went to various dance schools around the area and also taught ballroom in her teens! Tiffany then got into the world of burlesque dance during college and became a successful burlesque entertainer for 3 and a half years.

After college where she earned her degree in Commercial Music Production, life got serious. A full time corporate job took time away from dance and art and Tiffany soon found herself gaining weight and headed towards depression. On their one year wedding anniversary Tiffany's other half surprised her with a membership to Vertical Fitness in August of 2012.


Because of her history in burlesque, Tiffany had wanted to try pole fitness for a long time, but never took the plunge out of fear that she had gotten too big or too weak from her time away from dance. Well, it didn't take long for Pole Fitness and the amazing instructors at Vertical Fitness Studio (VFS) to completely change Tiffany's life for the better. Over the next 6 months she gained incredible strength and lost over 25 pounds!

After attending a workshop on burlesque and lap entertainment she realized she had a skill that could possibly benefit VFS and talked to Valerie about starting her own lap dance workshop. Damsel Delilahs NaughtyShop was born! Once that was on the schedule, she was asked to sub a few pole classes and now teaches regularly!

"I am so excited to be here and inspire students in the same way that VFS has inspired me! I love to watch the progress from that first chair dip to the first invert and beyond! I am a great example of how much progress can be made if you just keep trying and I want to show that to all of my students. I also love how my lap workshops empower women to be confident, sexy and embrace their inner fierceness!"
